9781906257149, titled "Why The Bear Has No Tail and other Russian Fairy-Tales: Russian Fairy-Tales" | Italian edition edition (Fontanka, April 30, 2015), cover price $11.95 | About this edition: In the 1880s, the artist, designer and illustrator Elena Polenova (1850-98) began illustrating her native Russian fairy tales.

The tales include "Baba Yaga," the story of the famous witch who lived in a house that walked on chicken feet. Ransome says in his autobiography that the English listeners know nothing of the world that in Russia listeners and storytellers take for granted. So rather than direct translation he read all the variants of the story, and rewrote them with Old Peter, Vanya and Maroosia rather than the Ogre, the Elf and the Imp.
